Building Our House

(1) K-3 Bean draws on childhood memories to demonstrate the process of one family building its own house. A little girl narrates the engaging and warm account; the steps are broken down into captions for half-page panels, while moments of greater import, such as setting the corners for the foundation, receive full- and double-page spreads. Family and friends make not just a house but a cozy home.
